Las Piñas

Las Piñas

A trip to Las Piñas City feels like a trip back to the past.

The city is most known for being the home to the world’s only bamboo organ. Found in the St. Joseph Church, the organ was built in the late nineteenth century by a Spanish Catholic priest. The organ is known for its unique melodic sound.

The annual International Bamboo Organ Festival is held here as well. Held every February, the festival celebrates classical music to commemorate the restoration of the bamboo organ.

Another place of significance is the Historical Corridor, located in the old district of the city. The area is full of restored buildings and structures, all dating back to the time of the Spanish colonization. One of the most important structures here is the Zapote Bridge, where Filipino revolutionaries managed to defeat the Spanish army.

Las Piñas is also the birthplace of the jeepney, a popular mode of transportation within the Philippines. The vehicles were originally leftover army jeeps from World War II, which Filipinos then transformed into a form of mass transportation. Jeepneys are known for their colorful appearance, with their sides painted with images of celebrities, landscapes and even religious figures.

Sarao Motors, which is based in the city, is credited with being the first company to mass produce the vehicle. Although they no longer produce as much as they did in the past, you can still visit their factory to see exactly how these colorful jeepneys, known as the “Kings of the Road,” are made.

Filipinos love the Christmas season so much that they start celebrating it three months in advance. As early as September, you can already hear malls playing Christmas jingles, some houses putting up trees, and streets displaying parols or star-shaped lanterns.

There are numerous stalls in Las Piñas where you can buy the colorful lanterns. More artistic types can even purchase the frame by itself and make their own personalized version of the parol. It’s a great way to give your home a Filipino twist during the holiday season.
